A Hyena in Wolf’s Clothing

Did I ever tell you

about a meeting I went to?

From the moment I walked in

I felt uncomfortable through and through.

 

Because I walked right in

to a big ol’ wolves’ den

but wait – they weren’t wolves

when I looked closer and again.

 

They were actually hyenas

each decked out in wolf’s clothing

and I walked right in

without even knowing.

 

And that first howl

I heard caused chills up my spine

because they were just

about to feed and to dine.

 

Now bear with me here

and try to take heart

while I disclose their secret –

the most chilling part.

 

You see, they don’t eat flesh

but enjoy tearing apart a soul

picking, ripping, and rending

seems to be their goal.

 

As soon as I left

I’m sure I was treated the same

my guess is they fed

and feasted on my good name.

 

So beware, beware

of any hyena in wolf’s clothing.

Ya-owwwww ha, ha, ha,

those beasts are filled with loathing.

 

Ya-owwwww ha, ha, ha,

that peculiar howl you’ll find

will send a tingling chill

straight up your spine.
